Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is being re-evaluated by several doctors because of slow progress. No other procedure is planned now.
Just because there isn't a planned procedure now doesn't mean there couldn't be one in the future. At any rate, you don't need to be a doctor to know that Manning's status for week one (and beyond) appears to be in serious doubt. If you have a late draft coming up, it would be hard to take Peyton, and if you did, you better take a backup who can start every week.
